Re: Can you set the directional pad to press and hold?

The E-M1X can be set the same too, although there are other options & means with custom AF areas & shape.
Yeah I tried that too, but I also prefer to have the d-pad set to move the AF points and when you have it set like this you can't change the AF pattern or face detection. I guess I just have to stop being lazy and get used to pressing the button multiple times

Odd that they don't give the option of press and hold though, seems an obvious feature to me. Not just for AF points but menus too.
